Chevron Socks



Just a little progress photo....I'm using Lana Grossa Meilenweit Colortweed, and let me tell you, it's not colorfast. It's rubbing off on my fingers something fierce, especially the dark pine green section. These will need some soaking in the vinegar when they're finished. This is my first attempt at an afterthought heel. I had no idea what I was doing but just did what the pattern said and it worked (imagine that!). I think I still like heel flaps the best but I still need to give short row heels another chance before I decide. These are being knit to trade for another set of hand-forged bronze dpn's...(you can see my current set in the photo).

Oh, what a lovely colorway! I really like the way the colors are looking in the pattern.

Your sock is beautiful.

I did one Welt Fantastic sock, but am delaying casting on for the second because I really hated garter stitch in the round.

Yours is gorgeous. Did your heel come out pointy? Mine did, and Alison had a pointer for how to fix it.

Anyway, beautiful color, great sock!

yeah, some vinegar and heating it up might help fixing the color too...
